Great view on theBay. Love watching the boats go out and come in off the water. Got seated quickly on the water like we requested. The Grouper Southwestern was great. And so fresh. The appetizers were great. Will be back. Service was ok.

Only reason we found this place was due to the recommendation of the front desk hotel staff. So glad they did. We had immediate seating both times, as we were only two people and willing to take an elevated table near the bar. (there were...More
